I'm pretty new to web development, in fact I'm thinking of diving into html and js for game developing.
So, before doing anything, I need to know whether or not the "canvas" element in html5 is hardware accelerated. If it's not, then I would need to use something like webgl? I don't know if it matters, but the browser I'm using is firefox(maybe it varies between browsers)
It might seem stupid, but it's an important question, specially since in games you have a bunch of 2d sprites being drawed all around.
Thanks in advance!
